Help with settings for certain cameras. DCS-7110, DCS-5020L

Post by Shadow_Storm56 » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:30 am

All of my cameras except for 3 work in blue iris, the 3 I cannot get working is a DCS-7110, DCS-5020L, DCS-5030L oddly enough there all Dlink but the other 2 cameras that are dlink worked just find with no setup issues, actually it's 3 of them. Trendnet and lorex cameras were really easy to setup as well. So if anyone knows anything about getting these cameras to work with blue iris that would be amazing :)

Are these drastically different DLink products from the one you're using successfully? Can you tell if they're advertised as being ONVIF compatible?
If you can get some technical details about these,* perhaps one of the generic camera settings will work that presumes similar hardware. That's a bit of a long shot because it seems that BI does a pretty good job of picking when it queries cameras.

* BI (usually) shows quite a lot of info when you click that "Find/Inspect" button. This is found in: Camera Properties>Video tab>Configure (button).

What did you choose for the camera model? I had the DCS-5020L and it worked ok. I believe there is a specific D-Link setting for it. I just retired mine and replaced it with a $80 Amcrest IP2m-841EW, the picture quality is ancient on the 5020L.
